Leave Means Leave supporter Lord Lamont succinctly categorised the reasons as to why the UK will prosper outside of the customs union in the House of Lords debate on the EU Withdrawal Bill. Outside the customs union, the UK will be able to significantly lower the prices of food, clothing and footwear, benefiting the poorest in society. We can enjoy free trade deals with countries all around the world, including the EU. We can create Free Ports around the country which will create thousands of manufacturing jobs, something the customs union prohibits.
Brexit is descending into a quagmire of EU jargon, legal complexity and meaningless political rhetoric. There is no black or white, but millions of shades of grey. This suits the Remain side. The government’s spin doctors can always salvage a sentence or two from a position paper, legal text or agreement and claim the people’s will is being delivered when it is most definitely not.

Tweets from several NHS campaigners were retweeted thousands of times, and we've heard back from Twitter users who hadn't realised how bad things are in the NHS at the moment. In addition, the NHA's Dr Louise Irvine took part in the Daily Mirror's live NHS crisis panel discussion earlier this week, alongside comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay and oncologist Dr Aislinn Macklin-Doherty. You can watch the recording here (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156407466189162&id=6149699161) . ** NHA supports JR4NHS ------------------------------------------------------------ We've had some great news regarding the legal challenge against ACOs. JR4NHS have secured the concession from NHS England that there must be a national public consultation on ACOs, and no ACO contract will be signed until the consultation has taken place. This is important as ACO plans are essentially a way of turning local NHS boards into insurance firms. The ACO plans have no legal basis in statute law. Now a judge has ruled that arguments on the lawfulness of the ACO policy itself should be heard. But there's a problem - NHS England and the government are resisting every step of the way and running up legal costs. Without a cap on costs, JR4NHS need to raise further funds to cover the possibility of having to pay NHS England's costs. Please click here to support JR4NHS (https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/jr4nhs-round3/) and help us defeat the ACOs. ** Day of action this Saturday ------------------------------------------------------------ As we reported last month (http://nhap.org/health-campaigns-together-calls-for-national-demonstration-on-saturday-3rd-february/) , Health Campaigns Together and People's Assembly have called for a national day of action this Saturday 3rd February. We'll be sending an NHA cohort to the London demonstration, meeting at 11am at Euston station - details are on the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/108133296659841/) . There are also events across the country.

“The Treasury and the IMF have been made to look extremely foolish”
It has been a busy week with lots of Brexit developments. Unfortunately, most of them are very worrying.
A report – almost certainly leaked by the Treasury – unsurprisingly predicted doom and gloom when Britain leaves the EU. Given the key role the Treasury played in Project Fear and the fact their projections have been so wildly inaccurate, these reports are completely discredited and should be ignored.
Far wiser economists have dismantled the gloomy predictions of a post-Brexit economic crash and have forecast that the UK’s economy could see a Brexit boost of £135 billion a year.
Published by the Get Britain Out Campaign, 02 Feb 2018
All of Great Britain must have let out a collective groan this week, as draft Treasury so-called Brexit ‘impact assessments’ were suspiciously leaked into the public domain. This reaction was not prompted by the fictitious content of the reports, however, but was rather an indicator of how discredited the Treasury has become as a forecasting body, seemingly dedicated to promote an anti-Brexit bias.
Private finance initiatives (PFIs) have proven themselves to be one of the most disgustingly transparent transfers of wealth from the poor to the rich ever devised by successive Labour AND Conservative governments. It is a bankrupt, sleaze generating and anti-democratic policy damaging the fabric of our society. It has to be stopped.
If supporting the abolition of PFIs makes me a ‘Socialist’ in this matter then so be it. As an independent conservative (with a small c) I can see the common sense in Mr Corbyn’s argument.
It is a warning to the Conservative government that many small c conservatives feel the same way. We are well aware of the Hunt actioned dismemberment of the NHS amongst others. BE AWARE.
